Best Places to Visit During Laos Classic Tours

Regrettably overshadowed by its more renowned neighboring countries, landlocked Laos continues to be a captivating gem within Southeast Asia. Situated amidst the turmoil of the two Indochina wars and isolated from the rest of the world for an extended period, this nation still exudes a serene and rustic allure, along with a remarkably relaxed and amiable culture. Here, we present our selection of the must-visit destinations for Laos classic holidays.

Luang Prabang

Luang Prabang

Luang Prabang

Luang Prabang, the former royal capital, holds a place of great intrigue, magic, and romance, making it one of the most captivating cities in Asia. This city has rightfully earned recognition as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It is a true treasure trove, adorned with splendid ancient temples and adorned with serene streets graced by elegant colonial buildings.

Nestled between the majestic Mount Phu Si and the flowing Mekong River, the city’s centerpiece is the Royal Palace Museum. This museum offers a captivating glimpse into the history of the region, showcasing its rich heritage. A short distance southwest of the Royal Palace lies Wat Mai Suwannaphumaham, a remarkable temple dating back to the early 19th century. This sacred place was once the residence of the Sangkhalat, the supreme patriarch of Buddhism in Laos, adding to its historical significance.

Wat Xieng Thong

Wat Xieng Thong

Wat Xieng Thong

Preserved from wars, fires, and excessive renovations, the jewel of temple-laden Luang Prabang boasts both elegance and historical significance. Positioned near the tip of the peninsula, overlooking the Mekong River, stands Luang Prabang’s most renowned temple, Wat Xieng Thong. This temple, characterized by its gracefully sweeping roofs, epitomizes the classic architectural style of Luang Prabang.

Stepping inside the sim, one’s gaze is drawn to the eight robust pillars adorned with intricate gold stenciling, guiding the eyes towards the serene golden Buddha images at the rear and upward to the roof adorned with dhamma wheels. On the exterior of the sim, at the rear, a captivating mosaic of the Tree of Life is masterfully crafted against a backdrop of deep red. Throughout the temple, the splendid combination of gold and deep red creates an atmosphere that exudes regal allure, captivating all who enter.

Vang Vieng

Vang Vieng

Vang Vieng

Situated conveniently between Vientiane and Luang Prabang, the charming village of Vang Vieng serves as an ideal stopover point for travelers journeying between these two towns. Nestled alongside the picturesque Nam Song River, amidst a breathtaking landscape adorned with limestone karsts, Vang Vieng initially gained popularity as a popular destination among backpackers.

However, it quickly earned a reputation as a vibrant party hub, reminiscent of Thai beach resorts, hosting lively full-moon celebrations that seemed transported to the heart of landlocked Laos. Presently, the primary allure lies in the surrounding countryside, and the town has transformed into an appealing and laid-back base for outdoor enthusiasts. Visitors can partake in activities such as rock climbing, cycling tours, kayaking, and other outdoor adventures while enjoying the pleasant ambiance of boutique accommodations and a variety of good dining options.

Pha That Luang

Pha That Luang - Laos

Pha That Luang – Laos

At sunset, the most significant religious edifice in the country reveals its true splendor, as the golden stupa radiates a captivating glow in the diminishing daylight. Pha That Luang holds immense spiritual significance for the Laos people, symbolizing their independence and sovereignty. It is a peculiar and exotic structure that seamlessly blends the elements of a Buddhist temple with the functional aspects of a fortress.

Even today, the grand monument maintains its fortress-like appearance. Enclosed within high walls, and adorned with tiny windows, it evokes the imagery of a medieval stronghold. Access is granted through elaborately gilded red-lacquer doors, further enhancing the impression of an ancient fortress. However, as one approach, the sacred essence of the structure becomes unmistakable, evident in the abundant religious symbolism and imagery that adorns its intricate details.

Wat Phou

Wat Phou

Wat Phou

Standing as the most evocative Khmer ruin beyond the borders of Cambodia, this sprawling mountainside complex traces its origins from the sixth to twelfth centuries. The awe-inspiring complex of Wat Phou, meaning “Mountain Temple,” rests upon a site that has held sacred significance for at least three distinct cultures. Central to the attraction of this location for these civilizations is the uniquely shaped mountain known as Phu Pasak, which rises majestically behind the temple.

Upon entering the complex, one encounters the remnants of palaces constructed by the Champasak royalty during the waning years of their dynasty. These palaces provided a vantage point from which the rulers observed the annual festivities held during the full moon of the third lunar month. A grand promenade, aligned in an east-west direction, leads visitors between two rectangular baray, or bathing ponds, and guides them towards the base of the middle level, setting the stage for further exploration.

An enchanting odyssey in Vietnam

Our 12 in Vietnam was an enchanting odyssey filled with love, discovery, and unforgettable moments. From the bustling streets of Saigon to the serene beauty of Halong Bay, every day brought new adventures and cherished memories. Your attention to detail and thoughtful arrangements of the honeymoon package enhanced our experience. It struck the perfect balance between cultural immersion, relaxation, and romantic moments. We left Vietnam with our hearts full of love and gratitude, knowing that this was a honeymoon to remember for a lifetime. Once again, thank you so much!

The first trip after covid 19 pandemic, 2nd time I worked with Alex, he was always great with everything we needed in Vietnam. The staff at IDC Travel always go the extra mile to please their customers. I would not hesitate to book with them again and definitely recommend the company.

Well looked after


May 1, 2022

We were well looked after by Alex from the start. He built the itinerary, organised hotels, transfers, trips and then during the trip his team was excellent.  

Very well organised tour!

We contacted Alex a few months prior to our travel to organise a private tour to the Northern Vietnam (Hanoi, Halong, etc). As we neared the date, we had to make some changes as pandemic has caused some changed on our travel plan. Alex is always very responsive and very flexible with our queries. Our trip was very well organised and everything went very smoothly. All the accomodation was booked according to our preferences. The driver and tour guide was very courteous and experienced. If I have to nit pick, I would probably say that the tour guide could do more with giving us more information about our activities. For example, when we did bike tour, it would be great if he warned us that we will be passing through the major road and sharing traffic with cars and trucks. Or how long the walking tour through the village going to be. Overall, we are very satisfied and I do think the tour is value for money, very well organised, and the staff are more than happy to cater for our needs.  

Personalized Tour – Organized, Responsive, and a Great experience!

I found IDC travel online because of the good reviews, and after a day of inquiring, Sir Alex responded right away with a detailed itinerary tailored to our preference! He is very responsive and accommodating with our needs, especially during our travel. Our trip in vietnam was organised, smooth, and really enjoyable! Even the organization of the itinerary and payments went smoothly. Some few comments would be agreeing to the previous review, like having the tour guide give us advices/tips about maybe the weather, what to wear, what to expect during the tours or anything important to bring if necessary so we could prepare better in terms of outfit, what to bring, etc. The drivers are very nice, but it would be even better if they greeted/welcomed us once we arrive. One driver did not have proper signage so we were waiting for quite awhile. Nevertheless, Sir Alex listened to our concerns and came up with solutions right away. Overall, we are very satisfied and it was great value for our money too. We booked another tour with them for Thailand this August. We cannot wait to book with them again in the future.

Beyond satisfied

We spent 15 days in traveling around Vietnam and Alex and his team organized a very well planned and detailed itinerary for us. Alex was very professional, very responsive and the tour guides were knowledgeable. Well done, thank you and kudos to Alex and the IDC team!    

Amazing 8-day trip from South to North Vietnam

Keith Turner

August 12, 2022

Alex helped me organize a wonderful trip for my family! He helped me a lot, from choosing locations and activities to shopping and dining details. Our trip was amazing. The tour guides were so enthusiastic. Our hotels were booked in the middle of crowded streets in the downtown areas, which allowed us to explore at night and enjoy the lively local lifestyle. In addition, the trip was reasonably priced and customized to meet our needs. We are grateful to you, Alex, and we can't wait for our next visit.  

Over my expectation

I highly recommend this tour to anyone who travels alone and just has a short-day trip like me. It was so well-organized with 10 days traveling from North to South Vietnam and visiting all the typical places here : Hanoi, Ha Long Bay, Ninh Binh, Hoi An, Ho Chi Minh City and Mekong Delta. Everyone I met was so nice: my guides, all the new friends that I made, and local people. The service was excellent. I'm really happy with my hotels during the trip, so clean and lovely. Thanks for a great tour!  

Great time in Vietnam
